generations of Japan referred to non-Japanese residents “… as gaikokujin or its somewhat pejorative abbreviated form, gaijin (foreigners)” (Hambleton, 2011). Even to this day foreigners that visit Japan, especially those visiting from the west will receive dirty looks from the older Japanese generations that oppose them. Now moving toward today’s modern Japanese society immigration in Japan has started to improve. “In 2007 there were more than two million registered non-Japanese living in Japan, comprising 1.69% of the population, a 45.2% increase in the past ten years” (Hambleton, 2011). This is where marital matches start to play an effect on the Japanese population. Due to the increase of immigration in Japan, “…6% of marriages in Japan involved one non-Japanese partner – and the number of children born to these couples continues to rise” (Hambleton, 2011). Even though those numbers might seem small they are playing a huge in diversifying the Japanese culture. References Duiker, W. J., & Spielvogel, J. J. (2017).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
